8 March. International Women's Day
celebrated on March 8 every year. It is a focal
point in the movement for women's rights.
After the Socialist Party of
America organized a Women's Day on February
28, 1909 in New York, the 1910 International
Socialist Woman‘s Conference suggested a
Women's Day be held annually.
After women gained suffrage in Soviet
Russia in 1917, March 8 became a
national holiday there.
The Charter of the United Nations, signed in
1945, was the first international agreement to affirm
the principle of equality between women and men.
Since then, the UN has helped create a historic
legacy of internationally-agreed strategies,
standards, programmes and goals to advance the
status of women worldwide.
